What Are Your Infection Prevention and Control Assessments Telling You?

December 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CST

Thursday, December 2 | 1 p.m. MST / 2 p.m. CST

A strong infection prevention and control program (IPCP) is critical to protect both residents and healthcare personnel from potentially life-threatening infections. Healthcare facilities must develop, implement and maintain an effective IPCP. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Requirements of Participation (RoP), in 483.80 Infection control (f) Annual review, “The facility will conduct an annual review of its IPCP and update their program, as necessary.”

The purpose of the infection prevention and control (IPC) assessment is to systematically assess a healthcare facility’s IPC practices and guide quality improvement activities (e.g., by addressing identified gaps). This session will focus on how to use the IPC assessment to monitor an infection control program, prioritize improvement opportunities and help teams develop actionable interventions for implementation.

Following this event, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain how the IPC assessment can strengthen an IPCP
  2. Lead a team to identify and prioritize a performance improvement project

Our speaker for this event is Jeneene Kitz, BSN, RN, CIC, a healthcare-associated infections prevention nurse coordinator at Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH).
